A look at the No. 24 Georgia Bulldogs (1-1, 0-1 SEC) one day before they play host to New Mexico State (0-2) on Saturday (1 p.m., pay-per-view):
Running back Jasper Sanks said his ankle injury will keep him out of Saturday's game. He suffered the injury late in the Bulldogs' 21-10 loss at South Carolina on Sept 9.
RB Musa Smith (rotator cuff) is questionable, as are DT Marcus Stroud (wrist), TE Randy McMichael (foot) and TEs Randy McMichael (foot) and Jevaris Johnson (ankle).
Of the Bulldogs' four leading tacklers, three are from the secondary - FS Jermaine Phillips (19), SS Terreal Bierria (17) and CB Jamie Henderson (13).
With Sanks supposedly out, Saturday's game should serve as a stage for a breakaway running back to emerge. The Bulldogs need a back who hits the holes fast, so Burce Thornton and DeJuan Green figure to have ample opportunity to show they belong.
